About This Content

The Settle-Carlisle Expansion Pack is a superb modern recreation of this famous and beautiful British route, complete with 5 locomotives and rolling stock.

Famous for its Ribblehead Viaduct and stunning scenery, the Settle-Carlisle line has long been a favourite amongst rail fans – especially since it famously escaped closure in the late 1980s. It is also well-known as a triumph of engineering against the odds, as a huge workforce was assembled to work in extremely tough conditions. The line is home to some dramatic constructions, such as the Ribblehead Viaduct and Blea Moor Tunnel, and rises to the highest point on the British main line at 1,169 feet (356m) above sea level. The line endured and won a five-year battle against closure in the late 1980s, and has since remained a favourite with enthusiasts who come from far and wide to ride on the line every year.

Now you can drive trains along this inspiring stretch of line, battling the gradients through the ‘three peaks’ and admiring the views as you drive over (and sometimes beneath) this wonderful landscape. With modern and preserved locomotives to drive, there is something for everyone on the Settle-Carlisle.

Woop whee!! This is one of the best routes EVER been released for Train Simulator 2015! Pity that it does not go as far as my Hometown Skipton though....but oh well, you have quite a bit of the Craven area from Settle to Ribblesdale, and the beauty of the countryside. The 158s are real magic on this route, and I have to say this. Get this route, you will not regret it!!

i have just purchased this mod (along with the class 158/159 sound pack from armstrong powerhouse) and i am very pleased with its quality, it is certainly worth it, however the headlights on all the northern class 158's do not work (player and AI trains) can anyone help?

Essential ... a lot of people will reccommend this route simply because its iconic, there is much truth in that however it really is only a medium length point-to-point route which once you have driven up and down it a few times will become tired fairly quickly ...

The real reason to get this route is its a survivor from the now mythical past of TS, back when Train simulator was good, the developers actually cared and DLC represented value for money and quality, This DLC shines and is a must buy for anyone wanting to build a collection of suitable rollingstock while getting the best value for money ... Settle to Carlisle comes with an astonishing 5 drivable assets and a heap of extra rolling stock. Because S2C been around for a long time and lots of people have it this rolling stock has become a common requirement for many community and third party scenarios. S2C will give you access to more scenarios than virtually any other DLC making it even more value for money.

Think of S2C as an awesomely good value asset pack with a pretty good free route chucked in with it.

Good level, plenty of free rolling stock. If you like the Carlisle to Settle line, then you can have a lot of fun with this...
Also if you own WCML upto Glasgow, it connects up the lines... Thus you can go from Settle to Glasgow, if you own both the Route add on's. Which can be a lot of fun...

The coupling between cars in the class 158 unit is bugged, it is like the cars are connected with elastic, the cars have gaps where the corridor connections should meet. Reported this over a year ago to support....still not fixed.

I bought this route in a 'Limited Edition' Bundle with an American Route 'Sherman Hill'. This is clearly the one I prefer though. The Settle to Carlisle Route is beautiful in real life & looks just as breathtaking in Train Simulator. I've been to both Ribblehead Viaduct & Garsdale Station in reality, and they're both rendered fantastically in this DLC. Not to mention that scenarios are plentiful - it's hard to complain about such a nice thing, but I've got two little not-quite-♥♥♥♥les...

Firstly, the AWS on the Class 66 is louder & clearer when you're on a Camera View outside of the Cab. This is incorrect, as you should only be able to hear it when you're in the cab. The other, again only a minor one, is that the steam engines in this pack should technically have AWS fitted if they're are Mainline-Certified. I don't mind though, the rolling stock in this scenario is fantastic.

For a start is the LMS Jubilee 'Leander' - this is a joy to drive, what with great chuffing sound-effects. It takes expertise to drive it on this route though, as they didn't call the Settle-Carlisle line 'The Long Drag' for nothing... the 4F is interesting, as is the scenario it comes with & for other passenger runs, you get the Class 158 DMU's in 'Northern Rail' livery. For the freight enthusiasts, there's the common Class 66 & the Class 37, both in EWS Livery. The Class 66, despite it's flaw with the AWS, is great to drive - again, a real challenge on this route even with an unloaded train. And the Class 37's are enjoyed by many, nick-named 'Tractors' because of the tremendous clag they make!

Overall, I'd say definitely go for this route. It's a looker, has great rolling stock & scenarios a-plenty - a fantastic slice of North England, rendered just as nicely as it is in reality.
